U.K. flyer for O2 shows HTC One X+
If we consider the phablet category to be separate from the everyday smartphone group, then this could be the Taiwan based manufacturer's flagship model heading into the beginning of 2013, the one which HTC is counting on to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S III. We'd love to see if HTC brought in a higher capacity battery for the unit, but those who designed the ad for the O2 flyer didn't seem to consider it to be important.
This is the second straight day that the HTC One X+ has appeared in a photo. On Wednesday, those serial leakers at evleaks sent out a tweet with a picture of the device wearing the T-Mobile brand. That, and the "Coming Soon" logo on the flyer indicates that we could see the HTC One X+ launch in the near future. The price of 479.99 GBP works out to about $779 USD, although the phone will surely be subsidized in the states.

Those buttons look to be glowing red... I like glowing red buttons.

Doesn't matter if you launch a rocket, it will fail if battery life is bad. I'll not make a mistake again, like i did with buying S2.

Rumor is HTC is putting a bigger battery in their newest devices, like >2100 mAh. And you shouldn't base your stance on battery life with a last-gen device. This has a more power efficient processor than the Exynos 4210, a bigger battery, and probably better software optimizations that help battery life. Same with all flagships that came out this year, they all have better battery life than their predecessors.

Numbers are all bs to me, give me real world performance and ill take it. But yeah generally bigger battery more life, adding another few hundred mAh wont hurt ;D

S3 has 2100 too, but still is very bad. Probably HTC's device will last longer than S3. And I prefer Tegra 3.

Where in the world did you hear the S3's battery was bad? It lasts at least a full day unless you decide to be on it constantly like a mobile gamer. And the One X+ does have a Tegra 3.

What a rubbish !! It lasts with no problem full day ! For me 2-3 days as Im using it as a phone, not as a main computer...

One X already outlasts the LG X4 which has 2100mAh battery and is there-there with GS3... So Jelly Bean + a 2000mAh+ battery will blow them out the water.
edit: I'm waiting what One X5 / Nexus 5 will bring to the table.

If the battery is less than 2000 mAh I won't even look at it. And I don't care about power-saving optimizations etc.
